Your CS:GO Inventory is about to get a lot more secure.
On December 9th, Steam will be introducing Trade Holds, a new trade feature that will let you ensure that your hard-earned items are protected. If you are unable to protect your account with a Mobile Authenticator, whenever you accept a trade, Steam will hold on to your items for up to three days to give you time to review the transaction.
Everything looking great? If both parties have had the Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator for at least a week, you can speed things up! Simply confirm the trade in the Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator and the trade will complete immediately.
Something not looking right? You can abort all outstanding trades on hold and prevent new unwanted trades from your account for a week.
So make sure you’ve added the Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator to all of your accounts by December 2nd and be ready to take advantage of instant trade confirmations. And as a limited time bonus, from now until December 16th if you have Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator enabled for your account, you will receive at least a 5% discount on your Market purchases!

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major at MLG Columbus 2016
CS:GO’s Eighth Consecutive Major Championship, first in North America
November 20, 2015 – Valve today announced its next CS:GO Major Championship is happening next spring during MLG Columbus 2016, with the final matches being held at Nationwide Arena.
Taking place March 29 – April 3 in Columbus, Ohio, CS:GO’s next Major Championship will feature the top eight teams from DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, who will compete against eight Challengers decided by an offline qualifier.
The six-day event will be streamed live via continuous high-quality coverage provided by MLG, with all matches featured on the official stream.
As with previous Majors, CS:GO fans will have an opportunity to directly support their favorite teams by purchasing exclusive MLG Columbus 2016 stickers, with 50% of the proceeds going to players and organizations. From the three 2015 Major Championships, professional CS:GO players and organizations earned more than $9 million through tournament prizes and sticker sales.
Columbus will mark the eighth Major Championship for CS:GO held since 2013, and the first Major held in North America. In 2015 CS:GO Major Championships drew record-breaking audiences, reaching over 1.2 million concurrent online viewers during their grand finals.
MLG Columbus 2016 will span six days, and will feature a $250k prize pool. Viewers can watch live in-game streaming, behind-the-scenes footage of players and Counter-Strike personalities, an All-Star match, and a special viewing party hosted by MLG. Group stage and quarterfinal matches will be played at the MLG Arena, while the remaining matches will be played over two days at the state-of-the-art Nationwide Arena.
